UPCOMING AUDITION DATES
will be posted here when available.
If auditioning for a musical, performers should prepare 16-32 measures (one verse) of a Broadway song of your choice. The entire song is not needed. A pianist will be provided for those that bring sheet music. If you do not have a song prepared, please plan to sing Happy Birthday or Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.
If auditioning for a non-musical play, there will be cold readings from the script handed to you at the audition.
Bring your calendar WITH you to the audition in order to write down any UNavailable dates/times on your form. We use that to create a customized rehearsal schedule based on actor availability.
One parent MUST accompany each actor under age 18 auditioning and parent is to fill out the audition form and sign it for the child.

A NOTE ABOUT CASTING & AUDITION ETIQUETTE
A great deal of thought goes into casting for each production with many different factors being taken into consideration including but not limited to: chemistry with other actors, height, vocal range/ability, dance ability, projection/articulation ability, and almost always schedule availability.
Not all casting decisions will please everyone, but it is important to respect the decisions and accept the casting and move forward in a positive light for the good of the theatre and everyone involved. Discussing or questioning casting is against policy at GCT. Good performers can find something new to learn about and improve their skills during any production. Bad performers are lazy, they complain, are disruptive, and don’t show good teamwork skills to support the good of the overall production. Be part of a team and a theatre family.
Per GCT Handbook, it is expected that you will refrain from discussing or questioning casting. Additionally, if cast, please do not post anything about casting on social media outlets until such time you see that GCT posts it on their Facebook page first. The reason for this is that some people may have not been cast or may not have been contacted yet by GCT and seeing or hearing things from others about auditions/casting can sometimes cause unnecessary anxiety or hurt feelings before the theatre has had the chance to contact everyone that auditioned.
Be respectful and supportive of others during the audition process. For some actors it may be their very first time auditioning for a show anywhere.
Relax and have fun. We want you to enjoy yourself and show us your best audition.
